Pohl's Introduction to Physics : Electrodynamics and Optics Volume 2 Hardback

Edited by Klaus Luders, Robert O. Pohl



This classic introductory textbook on experimental physics covers electrodynamics and optics.

It originates from Robert W. Pohl to accompany his famous lecture courses, it served generations of physics and other science majors, not only in his native Germany, and was for many years a standard textbook.

Pohl's lucid and memorable style and his consistent use of vivid demonstration experiments made his textbooks unique in their time.

This completely revised and updated modern edition retains his style and clarity in an up-todate format.

The accompanying videos document the original demonstrations and add many modern touches, bringing to life the numerous illustrations in the book and providing an instructive and motivating complement to the text.

They are linked to the corresponding topics in the text and can be accessed directly online from the e-book version.

The clear and impressive presentation, always based on experimental demonstrations, gives a lively introduction to the main disciplines in classical physics.

Although the volume continues to be comparatively modest, the material it covers exceeds in many places the expectations placed on a basic textbook. Therefore the book addresses undergraduate students as well as their teachers, and also the generally interested readers.
